Los Santos' Diamond Casino will be a target of an upcoming heist. The operation will see the players operating a legal business while preparing to clean out the Casino's vault. The players will be faced with a bunch of planning and decision-making along the way.

GTA Online's Los Santos and its residents are about to experience The Diamond Casino Heist. The operation will hit the game on 12 December 2019. The goal? Breach the vault at The Diamond, grab the goods and exact revenge on the Duggan family. 

The Diamond Casino Heist will take a slightly different approach to the usual Heist architecture and execution. The operation will feature a wide range of opportunities for set-up and prep missions - everything a growing criminal enterprise needs to become big and strong.

You'll want to take advantage of those missions because they can help you shape your plan of attack, make sense of the multiple paths of approach, anticipate the constantly changing security measures and stay on top of a host of choices once you're inside.

Keep in mind though - even the best-laid plans sometimes go awry and you might end up making some unexpected choices mid-way through your mission. If push comes to shove you can always use the "stealth optional" method and salvage your mission by shooting your way out the door.

All these instances may not happen on the first or even second playthrough of the new Heist but the prospect will sure keep those looking to experience every outcome coming back for more. The Diamond Casino Heist launches on 12 December 2019.

Rockstar's Social Club members and Twitch Prime subscribers will get a new set of free in-game rewards to coincide with the releases of The Diamond Casino Heist in GTA Online and .
